You want the best for your child’s education, and that starts with choosing the right preschool. In preschool, your little one will begin to learn academic and life skills, such as social skills and emotional development. Through lessons and play, your preschooler will learn how to interact with others, follow directions, and resolve conflicts. Crème de la Crème’s private preschool focuses on these fundamentals to support your child’s growth and development.

Importance of Choosing a Preschool
Before you send your child to kindergarten, you may want to enroll them in preschool so they become familiar with a school environment. It’s important to choose a preschool for your child carefully, as the decision can impact their early growth and development. When choosing the preschool you want your child to attend, consider the foundational skills they’ll learn in this environment, such as social skills, language, and physical development. Here are some fundamentals your child will learn in preschool.
Preschoolers experience a wide range of emotions, and they’re just learning how to express them. In preschool, teachers help young children learn to recognize their emotions and understand why they feel the way they do. Through encouragement and positive reinforcement, teachers show little ones how to be empathetic and compassionate to others. A teacher can also provide helpful feedback on your child’s emotional development.
At Crème de la Crème, we offer low student-to-teacher ratios so your child will receive individualized attention to support their emotional development. Our curriculum also includes enriching activities to help your child develop their emotional skills through artistic expression or dramatic play.
In preschool, children begin to develop their social skills by interacting with their classmates and teachers. They learn essential skills such as taking turns, sharing, and resolving conflicts. A preschool teacher can work with your child to teach them how to work and play with others in a respectful way. Through this interaction, children also learn how to follow directions. Our preschoolers have plenty of opportunities to learn and play together, whether they’re gathering for story time or making music together in the studio.
Preschoolers begin to learn how to solve problems as their cognitive abilities develop. Problem-solving skills will serve them well as they grow and enter kindergarten and upper grades. In preschool, children gain problem-solving skills through activities such as puzzles and games. The Crème de la Crème curriculum includes coding and robotics, allowing children to build and design through hands-on activities and applications. As they explore in the science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) lab, they develop reasoning skills to solve problems logically.
As the parent of a toddler, you know young children are constantly on the move. In preschool, children strengthen their motor skills, including both gross motor skills, which move large muscles, and fine motor skills, which use smaller muscles for control and coordination. Preschoolers build their motor skills through physical activity and play. For this reason, we provide preschoolers with at least 120 minutes of active play each day. Through this physical activity, your preschooler can build strong bones and muscles, creating the foundation for a healthy life.
Language and Vocabulary
Your child’s vocabulary grows exponentially during their early development, and preschool provides an environment for them to practice skills such as listening, reading, and writing. Play time, games, and music class can give your child the tools to communicate effectively. In a Crème de la Crème preschool classroom, your little one will participate in various activities to enhance their language development. They’ll take part in storytelling and play reading as part of the theater program and strengthen their language skills through song in the music studio.
In addition, your child’s tuition includes multilingual classes in different languages, including Mandarin and Spanish. In today’s multicultural world, learning another language, especially at a young age, can prepare your child to thrive in a global landscape. Plus, learning other languages teaches your child about different cultures and customs, broadening their world view.
Early Science and Math Concepts
It’s never too early for young children to begin learning science and math concepts. In preschool, children can explore their natural curiosity and ask questions. They can experiment with new materials, make observations or predictions, and practice counting and numbers. These skills can spark your child’s interest in STEAM and promote a lifelong love of learning.
Our curriculum includes enrichment programs to aid your child in building early science and math skills. In the STEAM lab, your child can do science experiments and become familiar with coding languages. Gaining these skills can give your child an early advantage as they progress in their education.
In preschool, your child can develop their creative expression. Whether through art, dance, or music, your preschooler will engage in activities that enhance their creativity and imagination. The art studio at Crème de la Crème provides artistic supplies for your child to paint or draw, while the music studio allows your child to sing, dance, and play instruments. Additionally, our KREM TV character education program encourages your child to use their imagination and gain confidence in their creative abilities.
